Summary:

Because workers are retiring later, today’s healthcare workforce is a lively mix of generations, with five distinct generations working together: Veterans (born 1922 to 1946); baby boomers (born 1946 to 1964); and Generations (Gen) X (born 1964 to 1980), Y (born 1980-2000), and Z (born 2000-2012). People born around the same time develop attitudes and personalities shaped by a common history of cultural events, images, and experiences. Generations live through the same national catastrophes and achievements, grow up with the same music and cultural memorabilia, and start school and work at about the same time.  Generational commonalities cut across racial and ethnic lines. Spanning 15 to 20 years, each generation views the world in its own way. Collective life experiences shape what generations value, what they expect in relationships, and how they process and communicate information.

Objectives:

The purpose of this continuing education course is to provide nurses, social workers, occupational therapists, respiratory therapists, EMTs and paramedics, and nursing assistants with insights they can use to work with various generations more effectively.

  • Describe similarities and differences among the five generations found in today’s clinical setting.
  • Identify tactics that can help you collaborate with generations different from your own.
  • Explain ways to promote teamwork and partnerships among diverse patients, families, and staff members.
